During a recent conference trip we stayed at a local hotel. One of the things I wanted to try while visiting Philadelphia was a cheesesteak. A friend of ours recommended we visit the marketplace to have one. As we were walking around, I noticed two...More

The line to Carmen's was sooo long that we thought we'd try Spataro's. Mistake. Carmen's is much better. Spataro's makes them in mass whereas Carmen's makes them one at a time. Yes, takes longer at Carmen's, but it's worth it. Spataro's also minces the meat--too...More

I was at Spatar's with my wife and son. We each had a cheesesteak sub and devoured them. Ingredients were fresh and the bread was terrific. Everything was prepared before our eyes. A great place to eat

Best cheese steak I've had in a while! Being that I'm from Miami my choices are slim! Only Miami subs! This worth the walk.

My first time in Philly so I had to get a cheesesteak. The Reading Terminal Market is amazing with tons of food to buy and look at. I didn't know anything about any of the cheesesteak places so I picked this one in the middle...More

Nearly 10 bucks what are they thinking here. They use cheap frozen minute steak unlike other great Philly steak places that use fresh rib eye or top of round. Canned mushrooms not fresh, skimpy with the onions a joke. Save your money if you want...More

I have never had a better cheesesteak (or even sandwich) in my entire life. I felt miserable for eating the whole thing but I couldn't imagine leaving any of it behind! I even tried a bite of my friend's who had gotten something completely different...More
